The blogger posted the undated video on his YouTube channel, pointing out that a NATO fighter jet tried to break through to an old Russian IL-18 military aircraft.
According to the Russian publication, Avia.Pro, “foreign combat aircraft, despite being escorted, attempted to break through to the Russian Il-18 military aircraft, bypassing Russian fighters right at the rate.”

“Where exactly this incident occurred is not reported, however.
